You recycle, you make sure all the lights are turned off before you leave the house, but what else can you do to be help the environment? With Earth Day right around the corner (the official day is Tuesday, April 22), many places offer opportunities to learn more about how you can make a difference. Genesee Country Village and Museum, at 1410 Flint Mill Road in Mumford, offers a special Earth Day event designed exclusively for homeschool families. The event features all sorts of activities to teach your family about conservation and recycling practices that will make us better stewards of the Earth. Activities include a "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" craft, hiking with naturalists to catch and release the unique inhabitants of the land, and visiting with "Johnny Appleseed" as he tells how he spread apple trees across the frontier.
The event will take place Tuesday, April 22, 10 a.m. -2 p.m. at the Genesee Country Village and Museum, 1410 Flint Mill Road in Mumford. Admission is $11 for adults, $6.50 for all students, and free for children 3 & under and adult members. For more information, call 294-8218, visit Gcv.org, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
